Take the following action:
- Insure that a valid license appears in the /bin sub-directory
of the OpenLink server components installation. The broker will not
start without a valid license.
- Check directory and file permissions.
- Compare the name of the Unix .taz files with the output of
uname -a. Determine whether or not the component is compatible with
the operating system.
- Use a text editor to open the oplrqb.ini file. Locate the
[Protocol TCP] Listen parameter, and take note of the port.
- Run netstat -a and open /etc/services or
C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC\services to determine if the Broker's
Listen port is in use by another service. This is typical of
Windows XP which uses port 5000 by default.
- Run netstat -a open /etc/services or
C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC\services to determine if UDP port
#60001 is in use. This will affect 1.x and 3.x installations.
- Attempt to start Windows Brokers with the Services utility and
the DOS command line.
- Determine what service packs, patches, or upgrades have been
applied to the operating system. Some upgrades cause the Broker
service to fail.
